Welcome back to the 2020-2021 school year. While last year ended rather abruptly, we are very excited to be back in action this year. We missed all of you! Our teachers and administrators are working very hard to ensure that distance learning as well as in school learning are done exceptionally well and with all considerations taken. Please take a moment to thank your teachers!
We, at HOM PTSA, continue to guide our activities by remaining safe and healthy while still focusing on our goal of improving academic success by facilitating family engagement, communication, spirit, and raising funds to assist where needed.
